MY THOUGHTS:

When I was in elementary school, I was so happy when it was "computer time" and I got to play The Oregon Trail.  I always had so much fun playing the game.  When I found out that I could review a copy, I felt like a giddy child again.  I went over to my sister's house and showed it to my nephew, Damien.  Of course, we had to put it in and try it out, which was exactly the response I was hoping for.  I wasn't quite sure how he would react because today's games are a lot different.  I didn't need to worry because he was thrilled with The Organ Trail!  After an hour, I tried to get him to stop playing and eat something but he wasn't having it.  He was still playing when I left, so this game was a huge success in my eyes.
